Deadpool is known for plenty of things, but wooing fellow superheroes seems to be one of his favorite past times. Ryan Reynolds, the actor who plays Deadpool on the big screen, seems to have fully embraced the role as an alter ego and it looks like he has a major chubby for fellow Marvel hero Wolverine. But can we really blame him for trying to bring back his fellow Canadian?
He’s alive and well in my timeline. There is a Logan running around out there with a little bushy chest and his little sharpy, sharpy claws, and he is alive and well and ready to go. I would love that.
Reynolds and Hugh Jackman faced off in the cooly received X-Men Origins: Wolverine and it looks like Reynolds has been smitten ever since. The two share a common mutation, super healing, but their first face-off was less than optimal. Thankfully the new version of Deadpool can talk, and it seems he loves talking about bringing the old gang back together.
I think convincing Hugh of that would be a near-impossible feat, but there’s no human being I love more than Hugh Jackman in that universe, and equally so as a friend. He’s just the best. I already miss him as Logan, so I’m one of those guys that whenever I see him, I’m like, ‘Come on, man. Just one more. Come on. We’ll do it together. It’ll be fun. Come on! On three. Here we go, together. One, two, three, together,’ and it’s always just me saying it.
The two have had a fun back and forth on social media, with Reynolds cracking wise Deadpool-style, and they seem to be hanging out regularly,

The love-struck Deadpool is getting mixed signals from Wolvy, the poor fellow. After a message on Good Morning America from the actor urged him to reign in his passions, saying:
I love you, man. I love Deadpool. I can’t wait to see the movie. You’re one of my best friends. Blake, the fam, the whole thing. But back it up a little. Play a little hard to get. It’s too much; it’s not sexy.
The advice to back off a little was followed just days later by this tribute,

What is a boy to do? Apparently, respond with a new video of his own. Is Deadpool trying to make Jackman jealous?
The pansexual ‘Merc with a Mouth’ has had his share of crushes, and his love of Wolverine is fully supported by his fans, but with Disney’s possible acquisition of Fox means he could share the screen with another one of his long-standing loves; Spiderman.
In the comics, Deadpool and Spidey have a bromance based on the formers mild obsession with the later, and their witty repartee would be a dream come true on the big screen. Of course, now we have a creepy age difference, but it’s nothing a time jump can’t fix.
Reynolds, to his credit, has made it clear that while the character has been with Vanessa (Morena Baccarin), he would like to play up his more open-minded sexuality on the screen to stay true to the canon:
What love is to Deadpool may not be what love is to Batman or someone else. I think that could be played up more. He’s an outsider in every way, shape, and form.
Will Deadpool find the furry-chested love he’s looking for in the arms of Wolverine? Could we ever see our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man manhandled by Wade Wilson?
Deadpool will bring together X-Force when Deadpool 2 hits theaters May 18th, and only time will tell if the sassy superhero will get to share the screen with one of his spandex-clad dreamboats. The movie will also star Josh Brolin, Morena Baccarin, Julian Dennison, Zazie Beetz, T.J. Miller, Brianna Hildebrand, and Jack Kesy
